Ivory 5 MAL-2, the Ultimate Mastering Limiter
Ivory5 MAL-2 is Acustica’s own interpretation of a two-band peak limiter inspired by a famous mastering dynamic processor from a well-known British manufacturer. Don’t be fooled, it is not a 1:1 copy of the hardware, so don’t expect the same behaviour!
It’s the perfect choice to control the highest peaks in your music program if inserted at the end of the audio chain in the most traditional way, but it can also be used as an extreme tone-shaping tool on individual tracks.
To use both limiters you need to turn HF ON; this enables a crossover at 2kHz that splits the incoming signal into two bands, allowing you to work separately on different portions of the spectrum (LF and HF). When HF ON is bypassed, then the processor becomes a classic wide-band limiter. More info in the User’s manual.
